Magick is a load of baloney! Isn’t it?

Hiya,

When we think of magic (or magick) we think of some exponent reciting a spell and ‘poof’ a unicorn appears on their lawn, or a million pounds appears in their bank account.

Hollywood magic!

In my opinion that is baloney. But, what about ‘real’ magick?

Real magick in my opinion is the ability to bring into reality that which starts off in our imagination. Sounds easy doesn’t it, and it is to some extent. We’re doing it all the time, every one of us.

What we don’t do is bring that which we desire into reality. We tend to bring that which we are scared of, or that which we have a belief system for, or that which we think is all we deserve.

The Secret

The Secret” made a big splash a few years ago explaining the Law of Attraction, like attracts like etc. It proposed that all you had to do was get into the same ‘vibration‘ as that which you desire and the universe will bring it to you – like magic!

I’m afraid that’s a bit too simplistic.

However, the right state of mind is a key part of getting what you desire in life. In fact I saw a fascinating documentary a while back that showed different individuals and their journey to achieving something. Those with negative states of mind (the, I only have bad luck group) found it almost impossible to recognise opportunity, even when the program makers tried their hardest to present opportunities directly to them. On the other side, the positive minded individuals spotted opportunity everywhere and constantly moved towards them.

There are many, many ways to teach yourself how to have a more positive state of mind and today I wanted to share a ‘magick‘ trick that will help, and that I believe is nothing more than a neurological trigger.

What’s a neurological trigger?

We build up associations throughout our lifetime from the moment we’re born to the moment we die. ‘Fire can hurt me‘ is a valuable association to learn. ‘I failed to do [xyz] which means I’m useless‘ is definitely a damaging and restrictive association to adopt.

These association will have a corresponding trigger – a situation, word, phrase, colour etc., which can all be triggers that bring forth that association and the feeling that goes with it.

We are surrounded by these triggers in everyday life too – think the McDonalds ‘M’, or Coca-Cola’s swash lettering or the National flag of your country. Seeing these images can trigger a state of mind.

In magick these symbols are called Sigils.

Sigils for magick

My recent sigil

A sigil in my opinion is nothing more than a neurological trigger designed by YOU to move yourself in to a state of mind of your choosing.

There are many articles that explain ways of creating sigils (or logos) and I urge you to investigate. You don’t have to believe the hocus pocus that goes with them – unless you want to of course.

The point is, you create your sigil based on what you desire and then keep it somewhere where you can see it – on the fridge, or beside your computer for example. The sigil becomes a trigger for you to get into the state of mind that will help your subconscious find ways to make that desire a reality. It acts like an instant mantra.

Your subconscious is so powerful that it starts to alert your conscious mind to that which you need in order to move towards your desire. It will give you hunches about things – act on them. It will make you aware of coincidences – notice them.

Try it this week, test it on something small first to see if it’s working for you.

And leave a comment below if you’d like to know my preferred method of sigil creation.

  1. Sign me up, this opportunist will give anything a go that looks set to help a more positive mind frame 🙂

  2. Hi Cinthia, one way is to write down your desire (present tense), then cross out all the vowels. Then cross out any repeated letters. This will leave you with a bunch on consonants. Now arrange those consonants to form a graphic. You’ll notice that mine still includes the letter ‘O’ predominantly, that’s because the rules in my opinion are just a restriction to help creativity – so I break them where I want. It’s my trigger after all. 🙂

    Signs are powerful – signs are magic beyond our untrained comprehension.
